I've been baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes since my son was born 18 years ago and now I'm doing the same for my 6 year old and others. I love eating and baking desserts, but my favourite thing to do is create a little piece of art on an edible canvas. Like all mums my days are always busy running around for everyone else so when I get some 'me' time I relax by either baking or making sugarpaste decorations for cakes and cupcakes. For those other mums out there who love everything CAKE I'll post some recipes,ideas and photos of decorations that can be handmade at home...sorry if I don't post every day it's sometimes hard to escape into solitary!!!

I was fiddling around with a new cutter we bought...
The top flower is still a little damp so it started to droop a little when it came into contact
with the buttercream...not bad though.
I sprinkled 'black sugar flakes' on top to make it look like a 'poppy'.
next time I make another one of these I might try using 'sugar crystals' as they are not
so large.
